New Look

I've been wanting to change my blog template, but of course have no idea how you do that. I'm just so tired so this plain jane template and need something colorful and fun. Then today I was reading the blog A Frog In My Soup and she has a contest going on to receive a new design from her website Sweet 'n Simple Design so of course you know I'm entering. It's just so hard to choose a design because she has so many great ones to choose from. I think I'm going with Spring Flowers or The Dotty Blog. The Spring Flowers is so soft and The Dotty Blog is so fun. Now I can't decide, if I win maybe she'll decide for me:) If you need any design work make sure to check out her site.

New Arrivals

I just added a bunch of new clothes to my website and will be adding more items very soon. Finally clothing that says everything you want to say like "Wash Your Hands First" and "Look But Don't Touch." I wish I had the Mommy version after I had my girls that say things like "MYOB (Mind Your Own Baby)", you know especially when you are out at the mall and your little one is crying and you get those looks from by standers that feel the need to offer their 2 cents. If you have twins have I got the tees for your kids. I have 11 designs to choose from and one design for a set of triplets and they are all gender neutral. Keep checking back to see new items like clothes, hair ties (what can I say I'm hair accessory obsessed), jewelry, baby accessories, and more.

Tip of the Week

Company is on it’s way and you have toys everywhere. Keep wooden baskets in living room and clean up is a cinch.

Got extra potatoes left over and don’t want to throw them out. Cut them in half and cut shapes out with cookie cutters. Your child can use fabric pant and decorate a custom shirt for themselves.

Tired of the little toy holder in the bath tub falling down because the suction cups won’t hold up. Buy a plastic shower curtain organizer (preferably with mesh pouches so they can drain easily) and instead of putting your shampoo in it use it for toys. I get ones that are more on the longer side so my kids can reach their toys themselves. I have even found them at Dollar Stores and buy a few in case they rip.

My Workout...

usually consists of walking around at the mall:) Well, not no more. For Christmas we got wii. Of course since I threw my back out I had to wait about a week and a half to use it, but it was worth the weight. The past 3 nights my hubby and I have been playing it for like an 30-60 minutes. I don't know how anyone plays the wii sports without burning some calories. I remembered how last year I heard how a woman played wii sports for 30 mins./day for 6 weeks and lost 20 lbs., so I wonder could this be true. I don't know that I'll get to do it everyday for 6 weeks, but now I am really curious. Could there actually be a workout that is fun and works at the same time? I weighed myself last week and will weigh myself again in 2 weeks and let you know if it works. Of course as much as I would like to lose 10 lbs., watch after I just got a few new pairs of jeans for Christmas I'll lose weight and none will fit, oh no I might have to burn even more calories off at the mall while buying new ones:)

Gotta Love Post Holiday Sales

Santa got Miss A the Fisher Price Easy Link for Christmas. Santa got it on sale for $25 vs. regular price of $30. Yesterday I was at Target (my favorite store) and they were on clearance for $12.79. I thought it was worth regular price, but $12.79 what a steal. Of course they get you because you have to buy extra characters in order to play those games, but still it's worth it. You'd pay that for a computer game anyways and this thing puts them on a kid Internet. It has learning, games, and coloring pages. Miss A played on it for an hour till Miss K got home from school and she's been playing with it for about 1 1/2 hours. I made dinner, yes for those of you who really know me don't fall out of your chair (by the way it was yummy) and am down here chatting before I take out the dessert I made earlier (please get off of the floor, this is the new Jennifer, the trying to follow her New Year's resolution Jennifer, ah who am I!) Just thought I'd share this steal I saw in case you have a Target near by it's worth checking it out. The had lots of toys on sale for 30% and up.
